Tour hits Moss­man

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

MOSS­MAN Pri­mary stu­dents spent most of last Fri­day out­doors en­joy­ing var­i­ous sports, thanks to a visit from the team from the Cape Ed­u­ca­tion Sports Tour.

In­struc­tors worked with teach­ers at the school un­der the pro­gram pre­sented by the N o r t h Queens­land Sports Foun­da­tion and the state govern­ment.

This tour’s sweep in­cluded vis­its to Cook­town, Rossville, Wonga Beach, and Miallo.

Pri­mary chil­dren were given in­struc­tion in rugby league, soc­cer, hockey, base­ball and ten­nis from seven in­struc­tors.

Tour co- or­di­na­tor Mor­gan Re­gan said the tours were tir­ing due to the dis­tances in­volved but had worth­while ben­e­fits to school com­mu­ni­ties that of­ten lacked sup­port for sports ed­u­ca­tion and spe­cial­ist squad train­ing. The kids al­ways en­joyed them­selves, though the prep kids were worn out by lunchtime usu­ally. But, ‘‘up north, way up on the Cape, they last all day,’’ he said.
